Ask Trevor CHT: What is an EMG and how is it different from conductive nerve testing?
"What is an EMG and how is it different from conductive nerve testing?"
"An EMG, or Electromyogram, passively measures the amount of electrical activity of a given muscle both at rest and during activity.
Depending on the muscle, either a needle is inserted into a muscle or an electrode is placed over one and the doctor will take a reading of the electrical activity at rest then ask you to actively cause a muscle contraction.
A nerve conduction test or nerve velocity test actively transmits an electrical signal through a nerve and measures how long it takes the signal to travel a certain distance."
